There is something about the change of the clock from 11:59pm on December 31st to 12:00a.m on January 1st that has the whole world captivated. Really, New Year’s Day is just a day. The clock goes from 11:59 to 12:00 twice a day, so what makes New Year’s so special? Maybe it’s the magic of having a whole new year to change your life for better or worse. Maybe it’s the anticipation of a better financial year, where your personal, and the national job market will actually recover. Or, maybe it’s finding that person you will love for the rest of your life. Whatever it is, celebrate the new year today (or recover from last night’s celebration) and make plans to change this year around.
Personally, I’m really excited for 2012. This is the year that I graduate from college and start my Master’s degree. I will hopefully also be moving out, although that may be next year. I will also get out of debt with my parents this year, which will help them out a lot too.
I also decided to make a few New Year’s resolutions, and am happy to say i started one today. I’ve been battling my weight for a while (5-6 years). I have tried multiple diets, and weight loss methods, but none of them really worked, and i usually dropped out of them. This year though I am determined to lose weight on Weight Watchers. I even joined and went to my first meeting today. With the weight loss comes exercise, so another resolution will be to get active!
Another hope for this year, is to start/maintain a relationship. For those of you who know me personally, you know this has been a struggle. If you don’t know me personally, this is one part of my life that I would change in an instant. For me, it’s not about just “having a boyfriend.” It’s more about the relationship, and having someone in your life that you care about, and that cares the same way about you.
Hopefully, 2012 will be great for everyone, and the world won’t end at the end of the year. But even if it did, at least I would die skinnier!
I was debating whether to even write a goodbye to 2011 post, for almost a day now. I’ve been back and forth, and mainly decided to do one, just to express myself and my thoughts on 2011. 2011 wasn’t a great year for me and my family. I had a lot of health problems, and my family had a lot of financial problems overall. Good things happened too such as that I got a new job, which I absolutely love, and this year marks my last full year as an undergrad. I think what I am most excited for is the start of the new year, of 2012, and of new beginnings.
In other exciting news, I am going to Disneyland to hear my favorite band perform. Their name is Suburban Legends. If you haven’t heard of them, they are an amazing Ska band. You can check out their facebook page here. This band puts on an amazing stage show, and I can’t wait to see them again tonight. You guys rock!
